Don Tiki - the Forbidden Sounds Of Don Tiki
If you're an exotica fan and like the music of Martin Denny, Les Baxter,
Arthur Lyman, Robert Drasnin, Eden Ahbez, or Hawaiian music you'll love
this too. Martin Denny himself even makes a guest appearance on 2 of
the tracks and his wonderful piano solo on "Forever and Ever" is alone
worth the price of admission. Here is all the best of exotica - bird
calls, jungle sounds, sultry female vocals, congos, bongos, xylophones,
vibraphones, flutes and much more. Jim Howard's use of the flute, alto
flute, and bass flute is particularly enjoyable and refreshing. There
are a pleasing mix of styles and rhythms, some are slow and soft and
others have a beat that will make you want to get up and dance. This is
perfect music for your next Tiki party or Hawaiian luau, or you can play
it like I do to just relax and let your mind pleasantly wander. For
pure listening pleasure, it's like MaiTai for the mind.

Am a musicholic - I'm 52 -- I heard my first Ventures song in '66 and have been a fan of twang ever since. Of course all the other guitar gods were added over the years, along with a lot of other great music. I have been a DJ in my younger years on air -- WPFW and in clubs and currently produce a local television show about the performing arts.
